New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson threw down an absurd dunk Wednesday night during a 128-124 loss to the Bulls.
During the first quarter of the game, Williamson got control of the ball in transition, attacked the hoop and put a Bulls defender on a poster. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
He absolutely destroyed the rim. Watch the awesome play below.

When Zion takes flight, it might be a good idea to just get the hell out of the way. Trying to jump with the former Duke star is a recipe for disaster.
He’s built like a linebacker with athleticism that might even match LeBron James.

You also simply can’t allow anyone to ever dunk on you. As a wise basketball coach told me, when a guy tries to dunk on you, either tackle him or slide out of the way.
Don’t end up on a poster. That’s something you’ll never live down, and Zion has murdered more souls than just about anyone else in the NBA.
Stay frosty, Zion. I can’t wait to see what he does next.
